    Red face Hello From Lancashire!!

    Hello All!

    Just thought we'd drop in and say "Greetings from Lancashire!"

    We've only been Geo Caching for a week now and are pretty well hooked
    Still amazed by the fact there are so many out there right under everyone's noses, and gutted we've only just cottoned on to it all...

    Well we've been out every day and have a tidy 15 under our belt so far even had the chance to grab one before work yesterday morning and went for a wander in the creepy woods in the middle of nowhere the other night ... yeah that was fun! needless to say due to the lack of torchlight, we failed to find it!?


    Well anyway hope to get to know you all!

    Welcome to this addiction called Geocaching, its great fun and a good reason to go for a walk.
    Hope you enjoy the forums, anything you need to know just ask and an answer will appear, as if by magic 'well almost'

    Hehe! the walk is definitely helping remove that extra Christmas weight, the lazy Labrador already looks at us with "Please no more give me a break" look every time we get the lead out but, needs must and our new found addiction has to be fed!

    I must thank you for your welcomes and have already found this forum to be quite a friendly place already

    Now to work out our route for tomorrow evening, anyone know where to purchase one of those "torch" things?

    Welcome welcome. Yes, I may not be Dr Dick, but I can safely diagnose that you are addicts. There is only one course of action for this. Get out, find more, then get out more and find even more. It isn't a cure, there isn't one, but at least while you are suffering, you will have a big grin on your face. And yes, please do join our fun mileage challenge, it started on January 1st, but any finds from then can be back dated.

    standard items whenever i go out, even if it is shopping for a pint of milk : torch, pen, leatherman

    not that I am obsessed or anything, just prepared.

    welcome to the madhouse btw

    Hi again,

    If you want to sign up, activate a new geocoin from 1st Jan, then dip it in to every UK cache that you do this year. Don't worry, it can be backdated to do any caches you have done this year. The GAGB is a good coin but you will find plenty more on Ebay for sale as well if you don't want to use the GAGB one. If you do decide to use a GAGB one, Dr Dick will be along shortly to let you have details about buying one from him, along with the coin number so that you can activate it straight away and dip it before it arrives. Pauses for deep breath. Thanks.

    You just missed out on the Warrington one.

    Only been at it myself a week or 2 but cant get out much so have found less than you.

    Just found a sneeky lil blighter in Bolton Town Centre though.

    Welcome.
